Dirty Money

On Financial Delinquency

Vincenzo Ruggiero

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • Considers financial crime, its origin, history and current characteristics and offers a comprehensive analysis of this form of delinquency
  • Connects recent events to the evolution of money, the philosophy of its accumulation and the nebulosity or criminological ambiguity of financial practices
  • Discusses specific conceptualizations of the crisis-crime nexus, especially in relation to the historical processes that slowly 'purified' the financial world by clouding the understanding of such crimes
